Default drones with Stealth units

Hi All

I just wanted to double check something with everyone, to make sure my sources were correct in a rules question thats seemingly grey in the codex:

Q: Stealth units are described as being able to buy one system wargear, that must be common throughout the unit. If this is a drone controller, each may then have up to 2 drones each. However are the said drones then able to recieve the benafit of the stealth field generators that the suits carry that help protect the unit from shooting attempts?

This is important since Id not want to basically negate the stealth of the unit by having models in it that are an easier target. Ive been told by guys at the local store that they do recieve the bonus, but I want to be very assured. (even the GW Trolls get questions wrong, so I dont bother calling them anymore)

Yes, the Drones are assumed to have built-in Stealth Generators.

Or if they do, it's Second Edition.

good question, i imagine so as it would a be silly and stupid mistake for them to have to forgoten such and important clarification.

i bet that the drones do get the stealth generators because what would be the rules for a unit that had mixed models were some had stealth generators and some didnt.

A simple question answered by the Stealth Field Generator entry in the Codex, and that is that the Stealth Field Generator rules only apply if all models in the unit are armed with one.

In addition, the final line of the Stealth Field Generator entry states that "Any drones controlled by a model with a stealth field generator will also be shielded at no further cost in points."

Hope this helps!
